BIG BIKE – I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who helped make the Big Bike ride for Heart and Stroke a success this year. First, a big thank you to Christian Walz for supplying and driving his vintage Fire Truck to help with safety during the rides – Highway 34 gets busier each year! Also, thanks to the volunteer fireman that directed traffic at the corner of Main and Highway 34. Thank you to the students of VCI for their fundraiser lunch for Heart and Stroke. As team captain for the Vankleek Hill Community Bike, I wish to thank the local individuals and businesses who contributed to the cause. A special thanks to Vankleek Hill Foodland for fielding a bike for the first time this year! Also of note were the employees from different businesses that “chipped in” to make the ride the best in six years! Congratulations to all. What a community we live in.
With gratitude and respect,
